Here a venerable oak tree was saved by Annie Maybeck (1867-1956), wife of architect Bernard Maybeck. She is said to have "marched off to city hall" to protest the cutting of native trees during street paving early in the 20th Century. She and other influential women founded the Hillside Club to promote "building with nature". The Club proclaimed that "the few native trees that have survived centuries should be jealously preserved....bend the roads, divide the lots, place the houses to accomodate them!"
The original tree - a coast live oak, Quercus agrifolia - died in 1985. It was replaced with a young tree of the same species.Here a venerable oak tree was saved by Annie Maybeck (1867-1956), wife of architect Bernard Maybeck.
